NORMAN, Okla. - Parking on game day, whether you're a Cowboys or Sooner fan, can cost a pretty penny. But, there's a way to score free parking in Norman on game day, and it'll make you feel good.

The Goodwill located at E Lindsey Street and Classen Boulevard offers free limited game day parking for a donation. The Goodwill asks people to give a few items of clothing for a spot close to the stadium.

Many fans think it's a great idea. They feel good about giving back, and it's an excuse to clean out their closets.

"We've given about four or five shopping bags so far, pretty big bags. I mean obviously we don't need them, but it's good that somebody else can use them," OU fan Matt Montgomery said.

"It's a win-win situation. It's very good. We park here anyway, but when we get to give something to someone who can use it, well that just makes it better," Tim Fabern said.

Goodwill said these donations really help, but they are in need of more donations. Visit the Oklahoma Goodwill Web site for donation locations around the state.
